Has Nintendo Stopped Making Remakes for Pokémon ?
Pokémon has always been a franchise that has hinged its success on what came in the past. In 2004, they started the remake formula that has brought them so much success over the world, and which established the franchise as truly timeless. Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the remakes of Generation I’s Kanto region with updated graphics, was such a success that The Pokémon Company decided to continue this massive train, releasing a remake for Generation II’s Johto in the form of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
These two games were an absolute phenomenon, quickly becoming one of the best selling games in the franchise and in the process taking the title as the quintessential Poké-xperience for many fans. However, The Pokémon Company and Game Freak weren’t done yet, as they released Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire for the 3DS. These releases completely changed how the original games were played (for the better) and added a brand new post game experience in the form of a Delta Episode.
So now, in 2018, I’m wondering where the heck we’re going to get a Generation IV remake, because let’s be honest, if any game deserves a remake, it has to be Generation IV’s set of Sinnoh adventures.
